Meet Karamo Brown’s Kids, Jason and Chris
Now that the fifth season of Queer Eye is available on Netflix, we’re back to obsessing over the Fab Five.
Yep, since June 5, we've done quite a bit of fangirling over (and research about) Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness. Fun (and surprising) fact? Out of all five stars, only one of them has children—Karamo Brown. So, who exactly are Karamo Brown’s kids?
Here’s everything you need to know about Jason, 22, and Chris, 20.
Jason "Rachel" Brown is a rising young star (following in the footsteps of his father) in Hollywood, who studied dramatic and comedic acting at the University of California, Los Angeles.
However, it wasn’t until he was 10 years old that he learned who his father was. Karamo opened up to Parents.com about discovering he had a son after receiving a subpoena for child support on his doorstep.
“My last girlfriend in high school—when I was 15—became pregnant with my child but did not tell me," Brown said. "She moved away, and I never had contact with her again; remember this is before social media. I was confused, sad, angry, and weirdly excited to be a dad, but felt lost nonetheless. We were both kids and don’t blame her for the decision she made because the choice was not hers, it was the adults around us."
According to Slate, Jason (who has a large social media following) hopes to build a career in the entertainment industry as a television host.
“I’m trying to pursue my dreams of being a host and an executive producer right now and my dad is literally the most supportive person I could probably have in my corner when it comes to helping with that.”
Oh, and did we mention Jason and Karamo co-wrote a children’s book entitled “I am Perfectly Designed?” Pretty cool.
After spending time with his son Jason, Karamo moved to Texas to become a full-time dad. He eventually also began taking care of his son’s younger half-brother, Christian.
“I took legal guardianship of Chris [in 2011],” Karamo told Parents.com. “Chris was nine at the time, and it has been an amazing journey. Again, I give my son’s mother so much praise for allowing me to step in and support her in raising our kids.”
Both sons currently still live with their father in Los Angeles. However, because of Queer Eye, Karamo is usually on the road and doesn’t spend as much time at home as he used to.
“He’s gone pretty much a lot of the time nowadays,” Jason told Slate. “It’s awesome you know because it’s more success and more opportunities that he’s getting into, but we would literally love to have him around like we used to have.”
And since Karamo is engaged, can we expect both Jason and Chris to be the best men? We sure hope so.
